How much do you weigh?

You didn't need to give a detailed description on how you prepare each of your meals. That kinda of stuff is for the recipe section;)

Your protein total looks solid though.

Your food selection looks decent, but it could be better.

Oh, you could probably use a bit more fat in the diet, and you could use EFA's (essential fatty acids).
